5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and sort of useful, March 24, 2007

This review is from: AcuRite 00795A2 Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer (Kitchen)
I purchased this item, and the 17" stand alone thermometer model. I knew nothing about barometers. I knew nothing about Galileo thermometers. I use this model in my living room.

The weather glass does indeed respond to pressure changes, and does a nice job of predicting foul weather. The thermometer is accurate, easy to read (and interpolate). It only works in a range of 64 thru 80 degrees F, but anything above or below those readings is likely to require I do something with the heating and cooling around my house, so it tells me what I need to know.

I think this is a great gift for kids interested in science. I have other weather glasses too, but this one comes in combination with a neat, accurate thermometer. I'm not a kid anymore, but I find it fun, as well as useful, myself.
